“Hey youngsters, it’s winter within the nice white North — you recognize what which means eh? Observe Mode!”, says my good outdated pal Ian Pavelko earlier than he begins having fun with snow drifting in his Tesla Model 3 Efficiency (aka MAGNETO).

Tesla Track Mode disables the stability and traction management restrictions from the automobile. In flip, this permits the driving force to drift free from the clutches of the on-board laptop. Nonetheless, these maneuvers are not advisable for inexperienced drivers for apparent security causes.

For instance, I’ve posted this brief video clip (see under) on YouTube and it’s enjoyable to observe it in a loop. The best way MAGNETO performs donuts on the snowy floor is definitely considerably soothing to observe. “Who wants a toboggan, when you’ve got a Efficiency Mannequin 3,” Ian explains.

Ian additionally took his Model 3 Performance for an thrilling snow rally at night and wrote a great story about his journey.

It seems that one other Mannequin 3 Efficiency proprietor took his Tesla snow drifting however over in Europe within the French Alps. That is some superb footage of his journey by the alps on a chilly winter evening, sliding his automobile in Observe Mode by a closed street.

In line with the proprietor Sebastian Vittel within the subsequent video, he has by no means pushed such a automobile in snowy circumstances. “The Mannequin 3 is quick, straightforward, safe, and enjoyable on the snow,” he says.

As we witness in these movies, the all-electric Tesla Mannequin 3 retains its stability pretty effectively on the snow — because of its excellent 50/50 entrance/rear weight distribution and such a low middle of gravity.
